If you are on an ISPF panel named x, and want to go straight to the panel named z, is there a command to do this?

Online research I have done has returned nothing for this.

Thanks.

NOT in the way You described it ...
but You can jump everywhere from everywhere using the = <prefix>
which in the ISPF logic means return to the primary option panel and then follow the <option list>

for example =3.4 will take You to the dataset list panel

thanks, but yeah this is my problem, I have researched and found the panel names, but do not know the system and so do not know how to get to these panels, unless there is a way of using the panel name of course.

Add command table entries that map the panel name to the ISPF option. For example:
Code:
Verb      T  Action                                         
ISREDM01  4  SELECT PANEL(ISR@PRIM) NEWAPPL(ISR) OPT(2)

But you still have to have learned which option to use, at least once.

Though, I think learning the screen name or other mnemonic is easier than the panelid. And probably the one character '=2' is probably easier to remember than the eight character 'ISREDM01'.

Actually, that is probably not exactly what you wanted. It will leave the current panel dormant until you exit from the newly selected option.

Jumping to a panel may not work for you anyway.

If the panel is displayed from with an application, jumping to the panel would not get you into the middle of the program.

Seems to me that learning the system is the way to go.
